My wife and I will be in Lima in a couple of weeks for just a day, and we are trying to find somewhere for dinner on a Sunday night. We're not opposed to street food and the like, but we'd like to do something more upscale if that's an option. Any suggestions?

My wife and I would love to plan a trip to Peru in 2014, but I'm reticent to try and do it on my own because I know nothing. Can you recommend a site or a travel agent (oh yes) or anything that can help us nail this down? I really want it to be a good trip and my ignorance makes that problematic.
